I Am the Sea and the Wave

Misbah enjoys poetry and loves to convey the messages of Love through her poems.

i-am-the-sea-and-the-wave

Illusion of Existence.

Grief has become more agile as a result of thinking.

the sea smashes me with waves, aren't the result of my decisions

Horizons fit like shadows in my mind as I'm observing,

A straight line must always be broken.

This long sigh seems to indicate the soul is weary of so much existence.

An oasis in this illusion of presence is the acoustic art of invention.

i-am-the-sea-and-the-wave

Endless Wave of Life

Dark clouds of frozen breath,

caustic questions at night, and

the taciturn silence that surrounds them

all play a role in this tale's unfolding.



Reading a few sentences on a page,

history books and fairy tales

helps me understand all the facts, and

actions that I could never envisage.



story narrated a dogma and a metaphor,

and suddenly I turn around, I see

what lies behind the enormous highway of momentum ~

that carried me here;



On the unending shore of forgetting,

lies a believer in the impossible, one

who is willing to break apart without a fuss,

One, who believes in the unlikely.



I am a continuous wave of life, and

I am the land sailing!!

Dip into your own soul. Find your own truth. What calls to your heart. What moves your spirit. Make your life dance

To the song of your own essence!

Thank you so much for your kind and beautiful response, Ravi. A gifted poet? That's really so nice and kind of you. I am just a student. Learning in the school of life. I highly appreciate your kindness. I always enjoy your articles on mysteries especially but a lot of times it's hard for me to leave a comment as mostly they didn't appear in my feed. Much Gratitude!!

Stay safe and healthy!!

Amazing poem Misbah. Your emotions, the loneliness, and the lone ship all shine through beautifully in this wonderful piece. You are truly a gifted poet Misbah.

manatita44 from london on August 31, 2021:

Loved this piece! You are growing as a soul and the poetry shows. Remember, not the soul for nature, but nature for the soul. That Rumi piece is quite deep!! ReD it again then perhaps you can write a review on it. I'll help if you need help.

"Horizons fit like shadows in my mind as I'm observing,

A straight line must always be broken." - I love these lines, they are so profound. They seem to contain a whole world of meanings and secret interpretations.

I absolutely am happy to read these poems.

They describe that ultimate feeling which is so hard for us to grasp.

Dear Misbah,these lines are awesome.

Much blessing and love.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on August 30, 2021:

It's all about perspective, isn't it? Anyone who thinks they are irreplaceable, we are but a grain of sand on the beach of existence. Beautiful work, my friend, and grief washes over your beach, I send you hugs and blessings.
